Re: Enhanced Director and Nominee Disclosure
As a director of a corporate director and former corporate executive, I support diversity disclosure of nominees as well as the diverse make-up of directors in the list of elements required by the SEC in the filings of publicly traded companies.
Reporting greater diversity in the boardroom ultimately is the corporate community's responsibility. The lack of Diversity Best Practices into the corporate boardroom contributes to lost market share by U.S. companies in today's diverse global economy. This lack of diversity has also contributed to group think and poor decisions regarding strategy and corporate ethics.
